More about RT

I think I have finally got over most of the jet lag so now I can report a bit more from the RT Booklovers Convention.  I think my overall impression was – FUN!  There was so much going on each day that it was almost impossible to take it all in, but I’ve got lots of photos to remind me and I thought I’d share some of them with you.  Here goes:-

First of all, we were there to spread the word about our books and I very much enjoyed the various signings where I got to talk to the wonderful American readers.  They are so enthusiastic about romance, it was a joy to meet them!

The first thing people say when you mention the RT convention is usually – cover models!  And yes, there were some but I was mostly impressed by their hair.  (The tights, not so much!)

Tights??!?

The parties were great fun, starting with The Red Slipper Lounge – of course I had to wear red shoes!  And the chocolate fountain was to die for!

Then there was the Ball – we all got to wear our (fake) tiaras and felt like princesses!

And best of all – the Freaky Friday Party!  The table decorations were fantastic and we were glad we’d dressed to suit the occasion.

On the Saturday we all took part in the Giant Book Fair – and giant it certainly was!  Something like 350 authors all signing books in one place, awesome.

And then it was almost time to go home, but not before I’d met some more lovely authors and attended the Harlequin Disco Party with the other ChocLiteers.

All in all, a fantastic week!

RT Convention Kansas City!

I can’t believe I’m finally here at the RT Booklovers’ Convention in Kansas City!  I’m having a wonderful time and meeting so many lovely people – it’s all a bit overwhelming but in a good way!

There’s so much to see and do – here are a few of the photos I’ve taken so far, starting with my favourite donut shop which I was very pleased to find at Newark airport en route to KC 🙂

More photos to come!
